Original Dating Presents...
The Spring Fling

Join up to 300 single Londoners (equal male/female ratio) for what promises to be the ultimate event if you're looking to meet your match in time for summer. 

We've exclusively hired an awesome venue, The Happenstance in The City, moments from St. Paul's tube station. This spacious venue has recently been refurbished making it the ideal location for our big spring party.

Meeting lots of people is the aim and our lock & key and speed dating icebreakers will ensure everyone gets to meet as many people as possible, right from the start of the night.

The format is simple: Enjoy a few drinks, try our icebreakers and flirt a bit and you'll have a great time and meet lots of people. So many in fact, you're almost guaranteed to click with someone!

The lock & key icebreaker explained

Girls get padlocks and guys get keys. The aim? To find a matching lock for your key (or vice versa). In doing so you'll meet loads of people, so many in fact, you're bound to meet at least one person you'll want to see again. This is a very easy way to meet lots of people fast and it's the best icebreaker we've found.

When you find a matching set, both you and your 'match' head to our desk where you'll be entered into our Champagne prize draw later in the night.
The more people you meet the more chances you have of winning some bubbly. And meeting someone you click with too. These nights are very, very successful.

Speed dating - all night

We're running speed dating sessions throughout the night and we've added more sessions so now everyone will be able to try it. Simply sign up on the night and you'll be able to meet loads of people for mini dates lasting just a few minutes further increasing your chances of finding someone you'll get one with.

Matching and messaging

You're bound to meet loads of people at this party, that's guaranteed, but it's not always so easy to ask for phone numbers. No problem. Using our clever website you’ll be able to view everyone you met at the event and select them as either a yes, friend or a no. We'll let you know when you get a mutual match and you’ll be able to private message anyone you matched with. No other company has this and it really sets our events apart.
